Nice Dinner

I wanted a relaxing dinner so I rushed home and cooked.

Taking a cue from Syd, he has been making me long for the beach, I boiled some shrimp, roasted corn on the cob and did a light salad and opened a bottle of wine. This is Mom's favorite meal.

To take it further and try to get that laid back beach feeling even though we are almost 1000 miles from the closest beach I set a small table outside under the tree. We ate outside, the breeze was gently blowing and the sun was playing peek-a-boo behind the clouds. But, what really gave it the true beach feeling I used a quart of Pennzoil 10W - 30 motor oil as the table decoration.

Ron, that is great. If you have any bags of sand around, you can sprinkle some of that about as well! I enjoyed this. Your creativity is great. I'll be thinking of you and Mom when I go to the beach on Sunday. Have a great day.

great example of living your own lives and each other. Can of oil? so funny!

My husband and I went for the first time to a Morrocan restaurant, sat on the floor (almost) and ate w our hands - so fun. He wanted me to feed him. I said "feed yourself" ha ha ha. We laughed, watched a belly dancer, and talked of traveling to Morroco one day. Then we walked a mile to a dessert cafe. Yes, we ate too much, but we are learing to LIVE!

Very creative thinking, all the way down to the oil! It is important to enjoy each other's company, no matter how crazy life gets. That is what my husband and I are trying to do also.
